Levada Walks

Levada Walks are walking trails along the maintenance paths beside the levadas — small agricultural water channels blended in the island forests. These channels were created in the 16th century to transport ("levar" in Portuguese, hence the name levadas) water from the rainy northern point of the island to the south point, where crops such as sugar, bananas and grapes were grown. Walking along the levadas is a truly unique and relaxing experience, with a scenic background of nature at its most lush.
